L3Harris Technologies has been awarded a contract to provide intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities support to the US Army and the Department of Defense (Dod).

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has been awarded by the US Army Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM).

It has a potential ceiling value of up to $886m and a base performance period of five years.

Under this contract, the company will provide different datalink architecture, as well as lifecycle management support services, for the army, the DoD, and the country’s intelligence community.

L3Harris will also deliver network design enhancement support for different aerial and ground-based communication systems.

The IDIQ deal also has five additional one-year follow-on contract options that will allow the company to continue providing datalink architecture and network design enhancements for warfighters and analysts.

L3Harris Broadband Communications Systems president Brendan O’Connell said: “These links will deliver resilient, fast, and discreet multi-domain communications across the globe.

“As a provider of army aerial ISR, ground line-of-sight, and satellite communications terminal solutions for over 40 years, we look forward to continuing to build on this legacy of providing timely, relevant solutions that meet the expanding needs of our customers.”

L3Harris said that the company is continuously working to evolve its resilient communication solutions and ISR technologies, leveraging its Trusted Disruptor approach.

It will further support rapid decision-making and planning processes using multi-beam, active, electronically scanned array techniques, as well as protected datalink and smart network exploitation capabilities.

The process will also use the multi-constellation orbit data transport capability for the associated ground-based and airborne systems.

In 2016, the CECOM awarded a contract to Harris to continue delivering tactical communication solutions for the US Army.
